General Description

The C38 is the most powerful centrifugal supercharger of
the Rotrex standard product range. Countless
number of large scale applications can be boosted
by this very efficient and silent unit which supplies
air flow up to 0.63 kg/s.

Impeller speeds of up to 90,000 rpm are achieved
through the patented hi-speed planetary traction drive
which combines small size with exceptional
performance and durability.

The very low noise and vibration characteristic as well
as the high efficiency of these superchargers set the
industry standard for what is achievable.




Applications

The C38 range is designed for four stroke gasoline engines with a
supercharged output up to 530kW. Where one supercharger is not
enough, it is possible to use two units to support large amounts of power
in a twin-charger configuration. The C38 is also ideal for the supply of clean
pressurized air for other applications such as industrial systems, fuel cell power
plants etc.

The groundbreaking compact size enables a very flexible supercharger installation particularly on engine
applications with tight space and where weight and size are essential.

Rotrex uses as standard an 8 ribbed poly V-belt pulley in high strength steel. Pulley diameter ranges from 70
to 110mm in 5mm steps.

The supercharger can be ordered with the compressor housing mounted in one of six different outlet
positions with 60 degree intervals to allow easy adoption to any application. For specific outlet positions
please refer to dimension drawing found in this document.


Oil system

The supercharger features an integrated dual-action oil pump that works as a dry sump scavenging pump in
addition to being the oil supply pump. The self-contained oil system allows flexible positioning of the
supercharger on the vehicle and has the benefit of fitting the supercharger without worrying about tampering
with the oil system of the engine or any other accessory.

The Rotrex C-type supercharger has been developed and extensively tested with the special Rotrex traction
fluid. To maintain the ultimate level of performance and durability it is very important that the unit is
exclusively run with special Rotrex traction fluid. Make sure the inlet oil temperature is within the range
specified in the table on the next page. Any deviation from the standard Rotrex oil circuit requires approval
from Rotrex.
